Just want to share my latest scrap-lifted creation. I was seeing these little purse gift sets and thought they were so cute. I wanted to make one as a gift cardholder for the bigger gift cards. Here is what I came up with.
The purse I studied before I made mine was one on Scrapalette’s Blog (here) .
For mine, I wailed images together in the circuit craft room using Forever Young and Art Philosophy cricut carts. I also used my cuttlebug with a sizzix folder called stars and swirls—used it just on the flap.
This was pretty easy once I found out the size I need for the gift card. The large gift card (I-tunes) measures approximately 5 ¼ by 3 ½, so I need to make my purse base half’s just a little bigger than that. So the narrowest part of the purse base is 5 5/8 by 7 ½ plus the flap. Total length of base with flap is 10 inches. Outside cover is shorter (to leave an edge) at 9 inches. Inside pocket piece is 8 by 4 1/2 . The pocket piece is folded in half and scored 1 inch in on each end -- that is the part that is folded over and glued down.
Other supplies – lavender chalk ink, glitter pen, small pieces of velcro set (for flap closure), purple ribbon, glue, Emma’s My Creative Time stamp set (Polka-dotSurprise). Imagine Vintage paper (music sheet for music cards!), and black /lavender colorcore card stock.
God Bless and Happy Scrappin’
